I understand that you can use CommonCrypto which is based on C but it would seem better to me to include cryptography as part of the core language runtime. Languages like C# and Java provide these as part of their language runtimes.

While I agree that a standard cryptography solution would be great, discussions of new functionality belong on the swift-evolution list. And, major new library functionality like this is considered out of scope for Swift 3, as noted on
